Hello Erica!
Just wanted to point out a highlight from the other photos you posted:
This first calls to mind Strobilomyces, but I think it is actually Boletellus ananas.

Thank you, Debbie!

I’m a 25 year old microbiology student with an interest in mycology. (I own my own business and work a lot, but eventually I hope to finish my B.S. at USF) I developed a habit over the past year of wandering in the woods near my home and photographing the myriad fungi inhabiting the area. I have a few ID books, but more often than not I’m puzzled as to what I’m looking at… I just discovered this site, and hope it will help me!

Here is a link to a gallery of my favorite photos. (I just discovered the macro setting on my camera, so they’re quickly improving)

Great picture! A view of the gills helps too, for color, attachment & so on. Spore print also, since they can be a different color than the gills.

Welcome Erica! What a splendid debut fungus!

I can’t wait to hear the conjectural IDs…but please, next time, save the fruit body!!! There is always somebody on this list obsessed enough to look at it under the scope, which is sometimes the only way to get a name…
